I had a work meeting today and I was going to be soooooo good and not eat the Hershey's Kisses on the table, and I was also not going to eat the frosted sugar cookies, and I was also not going to have a cup of hot cider...ummm yeah, what happened to your willpower today? Holy cow, before I knew it I had devoured a 190 calorie cookie, 160 calories of Kisses and probably 130 calories in the glass of cider. Excuse me? Nearly 500 calories for that junk? What in the world was I doing? Well, at least I can say the whole day wasn't shot. I made up for my little binge by taking it easy on my supper calories. But oh my. It is so easy to just lose your mind.
I tried to tell myself that I wasn't going to have any, but after being in the same meeting room with the same people droning on hour after hour, I just craved it. So I started with one Kiss, then one more, then another then the person next to me had a cookie and I could smell the sweet yummyness. You know the cookies I am talking about...the super soft frosted sugar cookies that they typically sell at Wal-Mart. I've been known to eat whole packages in a weekend. So now I am sitting here getting myself geared up to back out in the cold to go to the gym. I would much rather sit in the warmth of my recliner, but I know I have to push myself...ugh!
Update...just got home from an hour workout at the gym. I feel so much better knowing I got in some physical activity today. It was a good workout, lots of cardio and more weight training. I am even getting better on the ellipticals, they are getting a little easier every time I get on them. Woohoo! So glad I got moving. Hope I start to see the scale move, been on 213 for a while now which is awesome, but I am ready to see 212!
Ooh..wait I forgot one more thing. I did some thrift store shopping today and I am so excited to say I found 3 sweaters, very cute brand name stuff and in great condition for the grand total of, get ready for it...$6.36. Awesome! Already have them in the wash so I can wear one to work tomorrow. One of them was a 1X and the other two were XL's. Awesome!
